Survival stories

Our readers will know what difficulties they’ve faced during the Covid-19 lockdown. Here’s a shout out to some of the people and places who’ve offered help

Reasons to be cheerful

Where do you go when you are suddenly homeless? At writing workshops run by the Pavement we asked young people at New Horizon day centre in King’s Cross and the Pilion Trust in Islington, which runs the Crashpad youth shelter, to share ideas about how to pass time safely until life gets better again.

Stay upbeat when life gives you lemons
"Find a positive attitude. It's helpful because every day you'll face ups and downs. Don't give up."
